      • Water Droplet Experiment Dedicated Mission Statement

        Our mission is to awaken a sense of wonder and inspire environmental stewardship and citizenship through education of students, families and local residents along the Colorado Northern Front Range.

        Vertically-Aligned Curriculum

        Our Curriculum Coordinator works with each class to make the Field Experience unique to them. All activities will be an extension of what the students are learning in the classroom.

        Hands-on Experience

        All activities at the PLC are hands-on and encourage students to participate and ask questions.  We believe that experiencing learning instead of just reading about it can inspire a life long love of learning.
